The sting of seeing the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals hurts, but Thursday's rally fostered a sense of hope among a fan base that has been without a team since 2008. Green and gold was everywhere: on jerseys, on t-shirts and on signs. The second common denominator at the rally was the smile on every single fan's face. SB Nation Seattle interviewed a few fans at the Sonics rally to get their reaction and thoughts on the proceedings.

Thursday's rally also included musical performances by Common Market, Presidents of the United States, Blue Scholars and a cameo by Macklemore. Short clips of the performances by Common Market and the Presidents of the United States are included in the video below:
